The Breath of a House is the Sound of Voices Within
| Akademie der Künste Hanseatenweg
In an exhibition and as part of a series of events (16/17 March), 35 JUNGE AKADEMIE fellows will present new works that they created at the Akademie in the Hansaviertel and at Villa Serpentara in Olevano Romano.
The title “The Breath of a House is the Sound of Voices Within” (John Hejduk) emphasises the field of tension in which the participating artists can be located, between body and space, politics and poetics, but also mysticism and nature, introspection and exteriority.
Photography, video works, installations, textile works, sculptures, drawings and paintings question aesthetic, social and territorial boundaries and convey alternative viewing and listening habits.
Working on a new phonetic alphabet, assembling thousands of drawings in a stop-motion film or collectively embroidering symbols and images create poetic snapshots of milieus and portray communities.
